It has now undergone timber and roof repairs, had a completely new underground electric supply installed and has been redecorated, as well as having new cast iron fitted to the gutters, downpipes, and connection to an existing manhole. Now repaired, the building will be repurposed into a storage unit.
Cllr Andy Grant, chairman of the Housing and Neighbourhood Committee, said: “The refurbishment of the ticket office at Wellesley Recreation Ground is another step towards ensuring this important historic and recreational asset of Great Yarmouth reaches its full potential.”
The renovation of the ticket office is part of a wider project by Great Yarmouth Borough Council to sympathetically improve the historically important ground for great community use. The proposals include a new state-of-the-art 3G pitch and improvements to the athletics track, repair and maintenance of the Grade II football stadium and the upgrading of stadium facilities, improved lighting, and the installation of CCTV.
